June Hill, Shaftesbury, Dorset
Hello Nancy and Carlo
Thank you both for an absolutely wonderful experience last Saturday, truly wonderful. I think I can say that I am hooked! Cannot wait to do another one.
I had an email from Kelly and James. They really are buzzing about paragliding (they're saving up to train to become pilots) great to see that they enjoyed it so much.
Thank you again for a great day and hope to see you again.
Many thanks, June

All best wishes to you and hope to see you again one day.

Hi Nancy & Carlo
Just to let you know that Laura had a fabulous time today and we were both very happy... well worth the wait!
Chris & Peter Warner, Stanford Le Hope, Essex
Thanks for a WONDERFUL day on Friday - Peter & I enjoyed every minute of it.
Here are the photos... The other pictures will follow in extra e-mails.
The weekend was gorgeous weather wise wasn't it? Certainly shows in the pictures.
Hope we do see you again, the flights were a wonderful experience.
Thanks again to you & Nancy.

I just wanted to drop you a note to say a massive thank you for taking me flying yesterday with my mate Martin.
Ever since I can remember I have dreamt in detail about being able to fly and as a disillusioned 6 year old my world was turned upside down when my Dad explained that I would never grow wings and therefore I'd never be able to fly at will! Yesterday was as close at I know it will ever get to be able to fly at will and a dream came true so thank you for making me one incredibly happy man!
I think (to my wife's dismay) I've been bitten by paragliding and will be investigating in more detail how I can make a dream come true on a regular basis.
Carlo, you certainly paint a colourful picture of paragliding and are a wonderful advocate of the sport/hobby. Hopefully we'll see you again soon as that day out with you was totally awesome, and a day I'll never forget.
Thanks once again and maybe I'll be in contact again soon.
Take care fella and fly safe

Re: Flybubble Paragliding :: Tandem Paraglider Flights
It was an absolutely fantastic experience...
My Mum was similarly impressed especially how you all took such great care of her and went out of your way to make it a special day.
Barbara Miles, Reading, Berkshire
Nick and I want to thank you again for a very memorable experience.
Nick thoroughly enjoyed being up in the air with you and the peaceful time. He found it amazing to be flying simply by hanging in the wind and the sense of freedom, watching birds closely from above.
You have a great way of building confidence... and made Nick and myself feel very much at ease which made it so much more enjoyable.
I am glad I collected from friends and family to make this his present because I can't imagine he would have talked so much about any other present he might have had otherwise.
I will always recommend you and pass on your details to anyone thinking about a very special present.
Richard Platt, Tunbridge Wells, Kent
"My tandem flight last week was a truly memorable experience - for all the right reasons. Simultaneously exhilarating and serene, it greatly exceeded my expectations."
"Carlo explained everything as I helped him unpack and prepare the paraglider, which made me feel more confident and secure when we were actually in the air."
"... the launch was a breeze, and I soon had an armchair seat high above Sussex."
"Turning and wheeling with the sparrow-hawks and swifts, I did feel like my arms had feathers."
"... Carlo's practical instructions and informative comments made me feel that I wasn't just a passenger."
"It was just a breathtaking twenty minutes, and I would recommend Flybubble to anyone contemplating trying out a tandem flight."
Jenny Marlowe, Redhill, Surrey
RE: Michel's tandem paraglider flight with Carlo from Firle on Saturday 7th June 2008.
Michel enjoyed his flight so much he's just booked himself on a five-day course to learn how to do it himself! :o)
We both had a really nice day, and the weather was great. Hopefully the conditions will be good next time too :o)
Warren Charker, Eastbourne, East Sussex
Thanks for the flying today. Really cool.
I really enjoyed it and had a great time. I'm still buzzing about it, hilarious!
I will tell my friends about it and tell them to phone you up to do it as well.
After the flying I took us all out for a meal and bought my son the biggest ice cream I could find for behaving himself and waiting for me. He was saying Daddy was flying.
Anyway a day I will always remember. Excellent.
You're a lucky man being involved with such a cool sport for a living.
As promised I have sent you the photos and even one of that ice cream!
Graham Birks, Wantage, Oxfordshire
Just arrived home from a great day on the South Downs.
Thanks for the Tandem flight. Superb.
Really enjoyed the experience and may just have to look at a couple of days tuition next time round.

Georgina Lewin, Alton, Hampshire
Harry and Hugo both really enjoyed their tandem paraglider flights and I know they would love to do the experience again. It was such a fantastic day, they both had long flights and were even able to climb up very high.
It was all incredibly well run... so definitely worth every penny!
Thank you once again for everything.
Tracy Evans, Brighton, East Sussex
I just wanted to say thanks for the fab tandem paraglide today.
It was a fantastic experience and I would recommend it to anyone, even the very nervous.
Carlo made me feel like I was in a safe pair of hands, is extremely professional and I defy anyone not to enjoy it!
Well worth the wait of the low wind the day before.
I will be signing up for the course now I know how brilliant it is.
Glad I picked your company as I was very impressed with all the instructors and how quickly the students on the course developed.
Best wishes and thanks again.
Amelie Severing & Paul Haythornthwaite, Wimbledon, London
Just wanted to say thank you very much for our tandem flight yesterday.
Carlo, you made us feel at ease rightaway and if you had said "Let's fly to France" we would have trusted you it would work. :-)
It was definitely worth the wait (and that hike up the hill)!
Recommendations have already been passed to family & friends.

Pam Keen, Sandhurst, Berkshire
We had a lovely day last Sunday, Alex and Alison really enjoyed their flights.
Lovely scenery and fantastic weather!
Thank you for making it so special.
Hopefully we will be back in the not too distant future.
We have taken some photos and will send some to you.
Many thanks once again.
Duncan Raitt, Surbiton, Surrey
I just wanted to say thank you for taking me Paragliding yesterday. It was awesome!
I really enjoyed it and felt like I learnt something along the way.
It was better even than I had imagined.
Roger Kitney, Sittingbourne, Kent
Thank you very much for an unforgettable experience. I knew it would be good but it was even better.
A brilliant flight in extremely capable hands - if you can get a fat bloke like me in the air you must be good!
Thanks once again for fitting me in at such short notice.
Haven't stopped talking about it. Hope to do it again!

Hi Carlo and Nancy
I had a fantastic time over the weekend and still can't believe the wonderful feeling that flying can give you, and I am just a nervous beginner!
Thank you both for Kerri's flight, again it's much appreciated. When I told her I had booked a tandem flight as a surprise, her face lit up with excitement!
Once again thank you,
Angela Sellings, Reading, Berkshire
"Thank you all, especially Greg, for a wonderful flight last Saturday from Devils Dyke.
Having had several aborted trips due to adverse weather, expectation was high and everything was as good and even better than I had anticipated.
All the best to you all,
See Angela Sellings' video of her tandem paraglider flight with us from Devils Dyke (on the South Downs near Brighton in East Sussex).
Domonic White, Stroud, Gloucestershire
Had a bloody great time thanks!
I'm very keen to learn more about paragliding in the future...
Thanks again for a fab experience at the weekend - a great memory to look back on!

Thanks for a really good day!

Dear Carlo and Nancy
I wanted to write and thank you both for giving my daughter, Shelby, such a wonderful day and experience, she thoroughly enjoyed it - and so did we!
I have enclosed a copy of the DVD I made from the photos I took, I think you might like it.
Alay Patel, Bramley, Hampshire
Thank you for your professional coaching over the weekend... and you too Nancy!
The tandem flight was great and yes, I certainly did learn a lot... thanks for that.
Many thanks... and see you on those hills!
Mike Poltorak, Brighton, East Sussex
Just a quick word to say thanks for a fantastic tandem flight over Firle.
It was not only a physical experience par excellence but amazingly educational.
By coincidence, I was near to the Isle of Sheppey yesterday, and took great pleasure in telling my friends of your long distance paragliding exploits.
Thanks again for a great tandem flight, hugely informative and enjoyable.
I look forward to seeing the photos.
Hope all is well,
Rebecca Curtis, Eastbourne, East Sussex
I just wanted to drop a line to Carlo Borsattino to say thanks.
Have been wondering about trying paragliding for a while but, having a mild fear of heights, hadn't got past the 'thinking about it' stage.
I was up on Mount Caburn with a friend on Saturday and Carlo offered one of us a tandem flight. With no time to get worried about heights, jumped at the chance and am very grateful - it was fantastic and I will definitely think now of doing a course!
I would again jump at the chance.
Kate & Molly McCallum - Eastleigh, Hampshire
A note just to say thank you for a wonderful experience for myself and my daughter Molly last Friday when had our tandem paragliding morning.
Simon was really welcoming and made sure we were relaxed about the gliding. I particularly wanted to mention his safety talk and procedures which made us feel very secure about his taking us flying.
Anita Wood - Lightwater, Surrey
Many thanks to you and Carlo for a fantastic experience on Saturday.
Hope to see you again, my daughter was very envious and wants a go!
